"I see everything, I know everything, I exist in everyone, I am all in my embodiment of being, I am with you, you can heal and flourish again, wrapped with security, trust and strength - recognize the greatness in you that creates everything "he"!

I symbolize the cycle of being, be in trust, let yourself be completely committed to it, surrender yourself to me and the flow of life, for everything else is in vain, because the mind never understands how everything on earth takes place, the higher power expresses itself in life, you recognize that, you are at home in life. No fear can then grasp you, worries and hardships will simply leave you. Put away the worries of the past time, live in the NOW - get ready for it! you can recreate yourself every moment anew, recognize what it is worth to let go.

You came into this life without possession and you will go back from it in the same way. Everything material is only appearance, do not give it any more meaning to be useful. To live the call of your soul, YOU, to move the world and the people in light and love.

Take my medicine, it is healing for you - call me and feel the power that speaks from within me".

It took millions of years until it developed from a lizard to a snake. Its body thus glides streamlined, often lightning fast and reduced to the essentials. The reptile belongs to the class of the scale warblers and is for many uncanny and fascinating to the same. It has adapted perfectly to the climatic conditions in all the epochs and is at home all over the world, with the exception of the polar regions.  There are over 2700 species, divided into three groups: constrictor snakes, vipers and vipers. About 300 species are poisonous. Some live on land, such as the local grass snake, while others prefer water. They all like warmer climes and therefore like to be in the sun because they lack a warming system. If this is not necessary, they cannot maintain their body temperature and fall into a cold rigidity. The flaky horn skin protects them from the high heat and from drying out. Each scale dress is differently colored according to type and carries different patterns for camouflage. However, as it does not grow with the animals, snakes have to skin themselves from time to time. They rub their muzzles on a branch or stone so that the old skin tears and strip off the so-called snake shirt. The new, larger skin is already under it.

In the course of evolution not only the legs were lost, but also the eyelids were replaced by a transparent scale. They don't see well, they don't hear at all because their ears are missing, but they have an excellent sense of smell and touch with which they can grasp their prey from a great distance. With their split tongue they perceive traces of scent and with their teeth they hold the prey to either poison or strangle it. To devour the food, the two lower jaw halves of most snakes can be independently pushed back and forth and hung out. So it works, that the prey is often much thicker than the snake itself. However, they are rarely eaten as they have a low metabolic rate and eat prey such as mice, rabbits, birds, monkeys and fish for a long time. If the power animal snake loses a tooth, it is immediately replaced by nature.

Depending on the type, this power-animal has a twill-length of 10 cm up to over 12 m, as the Anakonda shows. The body can be short and thick, long and thin, round, triangular or oval. So also the number of the vertebrae is different, it reaches from 200 small ones to approximately 435 bigger ones. The loner lives also sometimes in a pair-community. To the winter-silence, often meherere hundreds snakes come together. There, the origin of the word snake-pit becomes more as clear, because caves like it particularly gladly. But also high trees or the vastness of the sea are, depending on the species gladly seen.  The boys come either directly from the body or in eggs to the world. A snake can live up to 40 years.

Common in all cultures of the world, the power animal snake is the oldest symbol of creation and life.

She is often brought into direct connection with the energy and healing power of Mother Earth and the sacred femininity. Through the removal of the "old skin" she also stands in the Indian tradition for the renewal of the soul and the human enlightenment process. Because change is life is healing. Those who have the ability to walk are healed and can vibrate with the constant changes in life.

Although it is often associated with the devil, demons and thus evil, in many cultures it has a rather positive to neutral aspect. She is often seen as the "guardian of the threshold" who watches over the realm of the dead. The word priestess translates as snake charmer.  The Celts, the Chinese and other religions saw her as a symbol for the renewal of life and death and thus for rebirth. The Greek god of healing, Asklepios, is usually depicted with a snake in his hand. In Tantra, the snake symbolizes the ascending subtle sexual power, called Kundalini, which in the highest bow brings immortality. The Kabbalah, the mystical tree of the world, is accompanied by a snake winding upwards, which functions as a signpost to "paradise". The snake amulet brings healing, astuteness, initiation and priesthood.

But we can also recognize the ambivalent of snake energies in some cultures. Negative energies (e.g. curses, imprecations and ancestor blockades) are often perceived as snakes in the energy field. The snake energy is like life itself. Just as it brings great gifts, it can also bring "bad blessings". It is important to remember that not every "bad blessing" has to be bad. Strokes of fate, accidents and complications often stimulate us to reflect more deeply, to release resources and strength and to initiate changes. If you have ever recovered the gift of an initially unhappy stroke of fate in retrospect, you certainly know what I am talking about.

In Christian mythology, the snake doesn't come off so well. It tempted Eve to bite the apple in paradise. Among the Teutons, the snake is one of the three world enemies along with Hel and Fenris. By biting its own tail, the primeval serpent Jörmungandr frames the world in Germanic mythology and is therefore also called the Midgard Serpent. According to legend, the weather god Thor met her three times. Twice he failed to destroy her, the third time he swung his hammer at the last moment and inflicted a deadly wound on her. But he also died because she had given him a deadly bite before.

The moon goddess Ixchel, from the South American tradition of the Mayas, dreaded for bad storms, wears a crown of snakes. The Hopi Indians tell of the subterranean water snake Palokon, which is in a mood to watch people and control all liquids such as water, tree sap and blood. When it feels like it, it causes earthquakes and floods. Rituals and ceremonies are still performed today to appease them.
